Quilt Sources

Quilt Art: International professional art quilt group
This group has a wide range of members over more than twenty years with both traditional and contemporary aesthetics.

Elizabeth Brimelow: Member of Quilt Art
The quilt at the top of her page was what I was looking at as I was sewing, trying not to be angry at the plastic for being so slippery.

Pamela Allen: Narrative Quilter
I quite enjoy her ability to tell stories within her work although I'm not sure I agree with all of her colour choices. I also really like her conscious use of 3D elements in her work beyond just fabric.

Joe Sladky's Quilt Frame and Video
This is the best explanation of how to build a quilt frame from a cute little old man! With a video!

How to Make a Crazy Quilt Fan Block

This is one of the two patterns I used to base the pattern I made off of. The other pattern was called "Circle of Life" or "Colour Wheel" from two different sources but when it came down to finding a picture of it, I was unable to. It's similar in structure but with thinner, longer blocks of colour.
